Capture the Flag

Divide the playing field in half and designate two small “zones” on both sides to hold people who are tagged. There can also be a designated circle on each side where the flag is placed. Divide students into two teams. Each team tries to take the other team’s flag and return across the center line without being tagged. When guarding the flag zone or the holding zone, a defender must be at least 2’ away from the zone boundaries. If a player is tagged while on their opponent’s side they must go to the holding zone on their opponent’s side. If a player who has stolen the flag is tagged, the flag is returned to the flag zone, and the player goes to the holding zone. A player can be freed from the holding zone when a teammate crosses the center line and tags the player; both players then receive a free walk back to their side. A player can only free one teammate at a time. If an opposing player can get both feet into the flag zone without being tagged, they can remain there without safely (without getting tagged) before attempting to cross the center line.
